- 1 12 ounce semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup FitJoy Pretzels broken into large pieces
- 2-3 candy canes broken into pieces
- 1 FitJoy Cookies & Cream Protein Bar chopped into small pieces
- sea salt to taste
Line cookie sheet with wax paper.
Melt chocolate chips and coconut oil using either microwave (see notes) or double broiler.
Once chocolate is melted, mix in vanilla extract.
Pour melted chocolate into cookie sheet and spread into 1/4 to 1/2 inch thickness.
While still melted, top with pretzels, candy canes pieces and protein bar chunks. Lightly press into chocolate mixture.
Top with a generous sprinkle of sea salt.
Let cool in refrigerator for 30-45 minutes until hardened. Remove and break into desired size pieces.
To melt chocolate chips, you can use the microwave or a double broiler. If using a microwave, melt in 15 second increments at 50% power. Stir every 15 seconds until chocolate is melted. Be patient and stir often to avoid burning. If you do not have a double boiler, you can use an oven safe bowl over a pan filled with water on the stove top to melt your chocolate.
Crush candy cane with meat cleaver or gently roll with a bottle. Crush pretzels with hands.
